Banks and NBFCs report robust credit growth  

Data from lenders Bajaj Finance, L&T Finance and state-run banks have shown a surge in loans. While Bajaj Finance showed a 35 percent jump in AUM (assets under management), mid-size banks Bandhan, Federal and RBL Bank also pointed to an 18 percent growth. The only dampener to the party was the rising cost of funds. Small finance banks also reported growth. AU SFB saw a jump of 20 percent, while Ujjivan saw a 27 percent rise.
